I have been using this software for several months now and it does everything that it says it will. I have had no problems with it and despite the earlier reviews I find it both useful and easy to use.

This is a poorly written piece of software. (1) You can't install it unless you're logged in as a userid with admin privileges. (2) It installs within a folder in the Applications folder, read-writeable only by the userid that created it. (3) It creates files within that folder for its data rather than using files in the user's Library/Preferences and/or Library/Application Support folder, thus making it impossible for anyone but the admin userid that installed the app. to run it.

When you do manage to get it running, you have to tell it what stock exchange to search for the item you want to add -- and it can't find some index mutual funds at all. Useless!

It looks and feels like it's ported from another platform (Windows?)

Happily you need admin privileges to install. And, other stock software can't find certain funds and stuff either. No point complaining.

@Pirx You're missing the point. It would be fine if the installer prompted for an admin username and password, but it's too dumb to do that. You have to be logged in as an admin user in order to install. And the folder structure then makes it impossible to run the app unless you're logged in as that admin user. Maybe it's been fixed in newer versions, but the comments were valid for the version reviewed (2.2).

P.O.S. installer ran for over an hour without accomplishing anything. Don't waste your time...

Still crashes the same way as ver. 2.0. Still doesn't prompt for admin login & password (it just says "this installer requires admin privileges to run", which isn't any more useful than 2.0, which tried to write into the Applications folder w/o checking to see whether the current login had permission to do so).

Crashes on launch on my Tiger 10.4.11 MacBook:

An exception of class NilObjectException was not handled. The application must shut down.

Installation would be friendlier if the installer app. would check whether the current userid has admin capabilities, and if not, ask for an admin userid and password.

For lots of good reasons, many of us have our normal logins set to be "standard" accounts without admin privileges.

Charting Equities... Created to complement the information that is available from a brokerage house, enabling the long-term investor to particpate in a more informed manner regarding their portfolios.

The Globe & Mail information retrieved by Charting equities is public and therefore, there are no associated fees or subsriptions to retrieve this data. Charting Equities is Freeware.

Consider Charting Equities as a replacement for the your favorite newspaper's business section stock pages updating constantly throughout the day. It is both fast and easy to use.

With an Internet connection one can retrieve either individual equities or all of one's portfolio at the click of the mouse. When the equity's information is fetched; that particular day's trading range, price per share, price change and the volume of shares traded, along with its 52 Week High and Low and its current Annual Dividend & Yield can be conveniently viewed. Once saved, Charting Equities will display all relevant information in both table and/or graph formats.

The Track Cost Price/Share of the particular equity is plotted on the graph. A Target value can also be plotted. At any time, any selected equity can quickly be fetched. All of the aforementioned information will be retrieved. We have endeavoured to keep the manner of data manipulation as direct as possible. Both data entry and navigation controls are accessible by menus, hotkeys and the keyboard including the use of the tab and arrow keys to simplify situations where mouse or touchpad controls can be cumbersome or even problematic. Information can be entered by hand and the Internet connection is not necessary for viewing an equity's data.
